Arno Schwenk, Probat

The colorette machine and process was explained by Probat’s Arno Schwenk and his associate Daniella Nowitzki.

If you think it might be odd for a company that builds roasters to be a major sponsor of a barista event, Arno says otherwise.

“We want to be in the process,” he says. “We want baristas to know what we are doing, but on the other hand, we are learning to. When we have interactions like this with baristas, we know more about the whole process and we can improve our machines. If we know the barista and the green coffee people, we know the process from the seed to the cup. The barista’s product is also our product.”
